The University of Maryland, in collaboration with Congressman Anthony Brown, invites you to Research on the Hill, an event series focused on raising awareness of research with great societal significance.
Implicit bias refers to the unconscious predispositions that affect human interactions and understanding of the world. Everyone has implicit biases and can often be oblivious to them, but they factor into many everyday decisions. Specifically, decisions at critical moments, sometimes made in seconds, may often be influenced by implicit bias. Greater awareness of implicit bias can help bring about better interactions between citizens and police officers.
This forum will explore this important issue through an engaging conversation that will include researchers, legal experts, and community and law enforcement leaders. Innovative training programs, research and policy initiatives, and other solutions and methodologies to address implicit bias will be discussed, including a unique partnership established between the University of Maryland and Prince George's County Police Department.
